You forget It is an eldritch horror,not some run of the mill clown.
Yeah, no, I remember that.

Problem is, Pennywise would just not fit in imo. Outside of genuinely looking goofy as shit, I can't even really see moveset potential with him outside of biting and shapeshifting, which are already covered by characters in MK11 already with Baraka and Shang Tsung. Plus, if Joker is going to be in, is it really necessary for two clown-like characters?

Plus, Pennywise is more of a terror for children than adults, even in his titular films. It just wouldn't fit in Mortal Kombat to me.

Both statements are incorrect.
You can go on to say my statements are incorrect when you use facts rather than opinion.(as this entire discussion is opinionated anyway)

I didn't say that a hero would HAVE to be Regime Superman. I just said they should go in a darker direction. Which can be an array of things.

Also, I didn't mean that the dark side wasn't highlighted in the comics, it definitely is.(As I more or less referenced in the first part of my initial post) The problem is, the comics aren't in the highlight of media, it's the movies, and they haven't really been dark. Also, they totally do delve into it a bit in some of the more recent movies, but for the most part they haven't explored it as much as DC has, which is kinda my point.

I think that Joker is a code name for Clown AKA Penneywise
None of the other character names are under code names, why would Joker be a code name for clown being a code name for Pennywise?

It's Joker.

Weird how Joker was one of the least played characters in both Injustice games yet Nrs decides to put him in anyway. Who makes these decisions?. I'd like to do Shao Khan's head through ass fatality on this individual figuratively speaking of course.
 
I was speaking for myself. I hate the Marvel vs Capcom IP because most of Capcom's IPs do not make artistic sense when put next to Marvel characters.
Good thing you're speaking for yourself then,because that's obviously bullshit. Because Capcom characters worked just fine standing next to Marvel characters just fine before.

People clearly liked the East meets West aesthetic.

Forgetting Jason and Leatherface so quickly?

At least Joker can have fun dialogues. That's already an improvement over those bland ass assholes.
Yeah, I appreciate that the guest characters in MK11 seem to be characters that can actually talk.

It is a fact though. There's the TV shows like Daredevil, Punisher, Jessica Jones, Cloak & Dagger and Luke Cage. They are clearly dark.

And we have films like Logan. Unless you meant the MCU films exclusively.

Wha? Why would two of the biggest horror icons of all time who've never been in a fighting game before have been a bad dlc choice? They were a dream come true for most of the population. Joker has already been there done that and been extremely unpopular.

Well yeah, the MCU is kinda what I was referring to.

The others are very dark, I agree, but they hardly got any spotlight unfortunately.

I'm basically saying it would be a nice way to highlight the dark themes and have it be in the spotlight for once.

Lobo would have been a ton more fun and fitting than Joker but I think you're all missing why Joker makes so much sense that it hurts.

He literally thrives and loves chaos and violence. While he's not exactly a fighter, he has shown himself capable of throwing some decent hands. Actually, fuck it. I'll cut to the part that matters.

He's fucking insane and we never got to see that really shown through the NRS games we've gotten.

MK Vs DC was close. He did some insane and violent stuff sometimes, but all censored.

Injustice 1 was a great rendition in story terms and appearance. The move set, TO ME , lacked but I was never fond of his particular type of play.

Injustice 2.... literally looked like a Leto cosplayer without tattoos. I can't even think of his move set because I was too disgusted by how he looked.

He has all the chances to be this knife tortuing, crowbar beating, killing people with humor, mass genocidal, crazy born to kill maniac we've deserved to see for awhile in this realm.

From things like being able to carve a smile into someone's face, to being able to spray toxic acid into someone's face and having it melt off. There are too many possibilities with this guy to be hating like that.

MK is not horror. MK is a fantasy/sci-fi. More importantly, it's a fighting game. Jason and Leatherface are not fighters; they are butchers. Jason and Leatherface doing dropkicks and sweeps will never not look fucking stupid. That's a few good reasons.

I want NRS to do The Joker justice. The pun is deliberate. He's an icon of pop culture. I'd be delighted to see The Joker with a classic design, new voice actor, strong dialogue, and a violent moveset.
 
As long as they make the Joker look like this, I'm fine.



If they do him like this, fuck no.


I loved Ledger in Dark Knight, but I don't want the Joker look like a fetish guy with face paint. I want him to look like a cartoonish demonic ghoul.
